Evra is a very good left back. Cole is a very good left back. What does it mean to say one is the best in the world, or even one is better than the other? There is no objective test for this. If they were both available for selection by the same manager then you would get one sort of judgement but even he might not have a firm view.
If the judgement is "I'm a United/Chelsea fan and I think Evra/Cole is the best" then it really doesn't mean any more than a couple of seasons ago Arsenal fans telling us that Clichy was the best left back in the world. It's just hot air.
When independent expert commentators start saying that one is the best in the world then I think that player can feel they are doing something right. That was said about Cole last season before he was injured. But United fans on this forum having digs at Cole in order to promote their own player looks more like tribal bollocks.
